Obviously Michael Comes to the Fringe
This 50-minute world premiere play with music is adapted from an original short story by LA’s John Maidman. Michael, age six, doesn’t like most people. They yell and they smell and they don’t make any sense. In order to cope with the illogic of daily life, this precocious introvert constructs his own imaginary castle filled with elaborate games and experiments. But despite his attempts to ward off dumb questions and irritating peers, they somehow manage to get under his skin. Music is by composer Court Hoang. Laura Steinroeder directs and produces. The design team also includes Giselly Rodriguez (lighting designer), Kimberly Aldinger (costume designer), Dani Roach (graphic designer), Shannon Dickey (stage manager). Featured in the cast are Zach Brown, Tori Gaines, Tanya Giang, Katie Kerr, Katie Lyman and Spencer Morrissey. Performances are Thursday June 13 at 7pm, Wednesday June 19 at 7pm, Saturday June 22 at 2:30pm and Saturday June 29 at1pm. The Elephant Space, 6322 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90038.
